Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Apprenticeships

This Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Apprenticeship deals with the repair and maintenance of all types of vehicles, from mopeds to lorries. There are more than 32 million vehicles on the UK’s roads, which means we need plenty of motor vehicle technicians to keep them roadworthy.

As an apprentice, you could work for a dealership and focus on a particular manufacturer, or work for an independent garage that deals with many different makes of vehicles. In both, you’ll choose your area of specialisation, whether that’s motorcycles, cars, heavy vehicles or vehicle electrical systems. You’ll be working in a service technician type role, carrying out routine maintenance and basic repairs, as well as identifying and reporting faults.

On the Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Advanced Apprenticeship, you’ll learn about more complex faults and how to identify and repair them using sophisticated diagnostic equipment.

Vehicle repair is challenging, hands-on work – every vehicle will present a new problem to solve. You’ll also need good communication skills in order to explain everything to the customer. But you’ll feel satisfied when the job’s done and that car is back on the road.
